Death…

Death… Never an easy one to get your head around. Inevitable, unexpected & the biggest unknown that awaits us all. Well as of yesterday morning, we’ve now been thrust into that strange limbo land that follows a close relative’s death. Hugely shocked, sad, numb, empty and faced with the seemingly endless mundaneΒ practicalitiesΒ that have to be dealt with. Friends and family have to be told, a funeral has to be arranged, a house has to be emptied, a will needs looking at, and who knows what else? It’s all rather weird, to say the least…

I know mother-in-law jokes were once all the rage (and I’ve never really understood why?), well mine was actually rather lovely, and we’ll all miss her enormously. 88 years is a grand old age to reach, and to be honest I’ll be very Β happy to even get close to that. I’ll also be very grateful if I’m remembered half as fondly as Gwen will be. A lovely, lovely lady who never had a bad word for anyone, was never angry (not that I ever saw), and used to dry her wet cheese-grater by simply popping it into the oven. Absolute genius πŸ™‚

Bye bye Gwen…
